We pass this house on the drive to town. Until about 2 years ago, there was still someone living here, and the place wasn't in much better shape at that time. At night, through the darkness, we'd see a stark, bare lightbulb shining feebly but defiantly through a downstairs window.
Recently, I heard a song that I fell in love with and I think it makes a touching story to go with this picture.
"You know I'll wait here for you
I'll wait here for you
No matter where you go
Or what you put me through
And I have walked this floor for hours and hours
Underneath the moon
And I am slowly disappearing here
Just a ghost that's shining through
And I don't know if you'll come back to me
Or if I want you to
I'll be waiting for you"
From"One Light Left in Heaven"
